's in deciding between safety and education, we need women to really getting gauged in politics. truthfully, we need them to run for office. many more and more women to run for office. one of the big focuses over the next many years is to get more women to run for legislature, city council. that is our pipeline to congress. it is also the regulations and laws being passed everyday affecting our lives and the lives of our family. >> questions? >> i am kathryn lewis, a freelance journalist for "the new york times" and others. as a follow-up to a leash's question, i have seen coverage that women are no longer this block that politicians can expect to appeal to with one set of issues and you can no longer count on women to just vote on specific issues. can you address that question and the challenge for you and in general for viewing women as a monolithic voting bloc? >> i always thought that it was odd that we thought they were one issue voters to begin with. 51% of the population? women are very different in that population. what i think is really important here is that there are key economic pri
mean to the education camps and execution and all of those things. so i think the discussion that has to be made between leaders and their constituents is that if we see something that we can rectify, we should. but we have to understand the limitations of those interventions, because you are far worse off if you fail if you have never gone there to start with. this brings us to syria. i'm ashamed. i'm ashamed. i'm ashamed as an american. i've been to refugee camps and met the women have been gang raped. i've met the families have watched their kids shot before their eyes. i've met the defectors who said their instructions are to go around and kill and rape and torture. and while we sit by and watch that happen, without even giving them weapons to defend themselves, this will be a shameful chapter in american history, my friends, because we could've done something. and we can do something today but we won't. i hear that the new president has been reelected, we will be re-examining all. only 37,000 people have been massacred, i guess in the grand scheme of things that's not too many co

regulation surfaced in early 2010. a catholic high school in berlin acknowledged that educators had abused students in the 1970's and 1980's. information about cases in other catholic institutions soon emerged. the church responded by hiring a respected investigator to document the full extent of the abuse. initially, a german church diocese offered cooperation, but that support soon faded. >> first, there was resistance in munich. then in rig it's a bird. it became clear they wanted more control for the church. >> the investigator accuses the church of censorship, claiming that officials want to control the study's findings. the church has spoken only of a breach of trust with the investigator. it says it will look for a replacement to continue the project. >> the diocese has already -- always been ready to help with this kind of project. we have said we are prepared to cooperate. that has not changed. >> the german catholic church has always said it wants to know exactly how widespread the sexual abuse of minors was in its institution, but it appears this dispute could delay a final repo
administration has not delivered on its campaign promises, things like dismantling the department of education, getting rid of the department of energy, cutting down on government spending. clearly government spending is far more than it was when reagan took office. taxes are greater. in terms of performance, in terms of delivering our campaign promises in 1988 think it is indeed a failure in that sense. now, it's a success in another sense, namely that i think that the level of debate has been raised in our country on a whole range of issues. a key one is the legitimate role of government in a free society. c-span: that is a call in show here at the end of the reagan administration. what is your reaction when you hear that today? >> guest: well, there is not much that has changed. we still need to ask, or settle, what is the legitimate role of government in a free society and a legitimatlegitimat e role of government in a free society is not that of government taking what belongs to one american and giving it to another american to whom it does not the long. c-span: have you ever in your life
on transparency of the public sources. it means fighting for justice in terms of education for the population so that they can work with determination to make their contribution to rebuilding their respective economies. the success knows no frontiers. and my officers will be dedicated, not only to getting haitians into the schools, to keeping up the fight against corruption, to establishing a rule of law, and my hope and trust is that the results will come. within less than two years, more than a million children have been left by the wayside now have free access to education. without any effort other than what has come from our treasury. already the effort for reconstruction is paying off with more than 1 million homeless people finding accommodation. and part of this, these benefits, come from the money, from you, the taxpayer's. and i say to them, all of our gratitude, to ensure that their solidarity has not been wasted. those who are most vulnerable are the ones who benefit the most. we wish well a country based on rule of law, and it is taking shape in front of our eyes, but yet the institu
places to cut spending without short changing things like education, job training, research and technology, all of which are critical to our prosperity to a 21st century economy. but spending cuts must be balanced with more reforms to our tax code. the wealthiest individuals tand biggest corporations shouldn't be able to take advantage of loopholes and deductions that aren't available to most americans. as i said earlier this week one thing i will not compromise over is whether or not congress should pay the tab for a bill they've already racked up. if congress refuses to give the united states the ability to pay the bills on time the consequence force the entire global economy could be catastrophic. last time congress threat bd this course of action our entire economy suffered for it. our families and our businesses connot afford that dangerous game again. i congratulate the newly sworn in members of congress and i look forward to working with the new congress in a bipartisan way. if we focus on the interest of our country boof the interest of party i'm convinced we can cut
take bits and pieces and create their own lessons. think of it as open source education. >> i think there's lots of occasions where businesses might try opening up and be surprised at what happens. for example, we wanted to translate t.e.d. into the other languages instead of paying for thousands of translators to do it, unaffordable frankly, we opened it up and made the transcripts free for anyone to look at. translators then applied at volunteers. we paired them up with each other so they could check each other and we've ended up with the library being translated into more than 80 languages as a volunteer effort. >> like t.e.d., we are posting my interview with chris anderson online. it's worth watching on our blog @cnn.com/yourmoney. i'll tweet it out, as well. thank you for joining the conversation this week on "your money." we're here every saturday at 1 p.m. eastern and sunday at 3:00 p.m. eastern. tweet me, high handle is @alivelshi and have a great is @alivelshi and have a great weekend. -- captions by vitac -- www.vitac.com >>> it is 4 p.m. in the east 1 p.m. on the west co
to happen. >> in the longer term crucial to that is education. one of the important indicators to watch which we don't spend enough time watching is what's happening to the educational attainment of the population and did it rise in this recession as it did in the great depression when people couldn't find work. there's early reasons to hope that it did though probably not as robust as the great depression when people could go to high school which was free, this time they have to go to college, which is not free for most people. >> rose: austan, looking back over the years from 2008 to 2012 and you left a little bit before that, what would you like to redo and would you consider it wiser to have it politically feasible-- big if-- to add 1.3 trillion stimulus to w no tax cuts? >> i don't know the answer. i thought about the context of what was in the stimulus. we know that there was some disagreement among economists of are we talking art a short recession or are we talk about a long recession? so there was a bit of a mixture, there was some short run things like chraung and there were l
at a number of the social and demographic factors as much. we do see differences in terms of education so there were some things with the study showing differences with education, with support at home could be a factor with that. it's important to keep in mind there are a number of factors that are not just related to psychiatric illness but stressors, culture, support, support at home, supports with school and those involved with the child or adolescent. >> doctor timothy lineberry of the mayo clinic psychiatric hospital and dr. daly of drexel university thank you both so much. >> thank you. >> brown: still to come on the "newshour": requiring a search warrant for a blood test; reducing troop levels in afghanistan to zero; using robots as therapy; fighting the flu and denying major stars entry to the hall of fame. but first, the other news of the day. here's hari sreenivasan. >> sreenivasan: president obama is ready to name a new treasury secretary-- his own chief of staff, jack lew. it was widely reported today that the announcement will come tomorrow. lew played a key role in the recen
education. in fact, she's continuing it inside the hospital, and now at her temporary home in birmingham in central england. she's a very enthusiastic studious student. she was campaigning very vocally and articulating for women to be educated all over pakistan. there's a problem with that. that's going to continue. she's gathered hundreds of thousands of people that signed petitions calling for her to be given the nobel peace prize. that's how much of an impact this girl has had around the world. >> what about the folks, the extremists who tried to kill her? were they ever caught? was anybody brought to justice? >> the pakistani authorities say that they've been rounding up the people they believe are responsible in terms of the trigger men. but the people who issued the ortds, the taliban leadership pakistan and afghanistan, obviously they haven't been brought to justice. what the taliban has said is that it will try again to kill mala malala because of her continued comments regarding educate. the death threat is not lifted. >> does she have security? are people trying to protect her
